|Abstract: ||The Mars Rover-missions demonstrate that there are accessible Martian sulfate deposits (evaporites). These sedimentary rocks could indicate influence of past or present biotic processes even in the absence of traces of extraterrestrial life. We evaluate the potential of the analysis of mass independent isotope fractionation of oxygen in sulfate as a biosignature.|
